: Lovely Professional University hide information what is actual fact in transparency :
The Hon’able Governor of Punjab,
Subject : Why do Lovely Professional University hide Information under RTI Act)
I want to bring your kind notice to the state private universities that are looting innocent students with both hands and filling their coffer with money.
I filed an application under RTI Act to seek some information from Lovely Profession University distance education study center working all over India on dated 21-08-2014.
When LPU PIO failed to furnish information within stipulated time I wrote a complaint to State Information Commission Punjab.
State Information Commission after examining the documents placed on record it is found insufficient reply and ordered that PIO of office the Registrar Lovely Professional University Jalandhar to file her reply to the show cause issued to her vide orders dated 10-03-2015 before or on the next date of hearing.
On dated 12 May 2015 SICP show cause issued vide order dated 10-03-2015 for willful delay /denial in supplying the information. In this reply Lovely Professional University RPIO had many excuses to avoid to furnish any answer of the RTI application.
Another false point in the reply that therefore, on receiving a copy of the original RTI request of the complaint addressed to the undersigned along with the order of the Hon’able Commission sent on 24 March 2015 requisite information had been supplied to the complaint on 9-04-2015 and that was duly acknowledged by the complainant and he was satisfied with the same.
In fact LPU has not furnished any information to me till date. A number of people from Lovely Professional University followed me continuous to withdraw RTI application. At last under pressure, mental harassment I signed on the letter on 15th April 2015 one day before the date of hearing in the SICP on this condition that they will provide me requisite information to me within time.
Instead of provide information to me. On 13th May 2015 LPU supplied the letter to SICP that applicant is satisfied and got information. Sh. Chander Parkash SICP adjourned the case.
Actually Lovely Professional University did not furnish any answer to my RTI application. Now question arises that why should LPU hide information what is there embezzlement in the record or why do they conceal all information. It shows that LPU has a big scam in education field and the government department MHRD UGC and higher education authority must investigate all the record of Lovely Profession University as soon as possible.
I request to Governor of Punjab, Vigilance and CBI have to investigate all records of Lovely Professional University to find transparency in the account and student detail. Is LPU working fairly to provide education to students as per law under UGC, MHRD and Society Act.
